3.‘Daughters?’ he said. ‘Oh,—well,—children, that’s all; there is one little girl that plays charmingly,’ Frank added, with easy candour; ‘but Laurie never cared for music. I don’t think there’s anything in that.’
6. "And now as to the villains who seemed to be immediatelyimplicated in the matter. The lascar was known to be a man of thevilest antecedents, but as, by Mrs. St. Clairs story, he was known tohave been at the foot of the stair within a very few seconds of herhusbands appearance at the window, he could hardly have been morethan an accessory to the crime. His defense was one of absoluteignorance, and he protested that he had no knowledge as to thedoings of Hugh Boone, his lodger, and that he could not account in anyway for the presence of the missing gentlemans clothes."So much for the lascar manager. Now for the sinister cripple wholives upon the second floor of the opium den, and who was certainlythe last human being whose eyes rested upon Neville St. Clair. Hisname is Hugh Boone, and his hideous face is one which is familiar toevery man who goes much to the City. He is a professional beggar,though in order to avoid the police regulations he pretends to a smalltrade in wax vestas. Some little distance down Thread needle Street,upon the left-hand side, there is, as you may have remarked, a smallangle in the wall. Here it is that this creature takes his daily seat,crosslegged, with his tiny stock of matches on his lap, and as he is apiteous spectacle a small rain of charity descends into the greasyleather cap which lies upon the pavement beside him. I have watchedthe fellow more than once before ever I thought of making hisprofessional acquaintance, and I have been surprised at the harvestwhich he has reaped in a short time. His appearance, you see, is soremarkable that no one can pass him without observing him. A shockof orange hair, a pale face disfigured by a horrible scar, which, byits contraction, has turned up the outer edge of his upper lip, abulldog chin, and a pair of very penetrating dark eyes, whichpresent a singular contrast to the colour of his hair, all mark himout from amid the common crowd of mendicants, and so, too, does hiswit, for he is ever ready with a reply to any piece of chaff which maybe thrown at him by the passers-by. This is the man whom we nowlearn to have been the lodger at the opium den, and to have been thelast man to see the gentleman of whom we are in quest.""But a cripple!" said I. "What could he have done single-handedagainst a man in the prime of life?"
3. "I do not know, but he wishes to speak to you."
4.A few days later Do?a Magdalena asked the Kings permission to go and visit her estates, Luis Quijada not being able to do so on account of his duties with D. John and Prince Carlos.
